About the position

We are looking for a Frontend Engineer who is passionate about working on an architectural level to make sure all our frontend applications work in a reliable, scalable and performant way. 


In a fast-growing scale-up priorities might shift from time to time. You’ll gain experience and ownership in different domains depending on your ambition, but here are some general topics:

  • Experiment, think about and take ownership of different parts of our frontend architecture and find ways to improve it.

  • You will be working on new features or improvements that affect all different frontend teams and will collaborate with the other teams with any technical issues they may have.

  • Iterate on our design system, in close collaboration with the design team.

  • Work on keeping a high technical standard, together with the rest of the frontend team.

  • Provide support to your team members and other teams in the company. We have a very open and flat structure and have a very short feedback loop on both internal and customer questions.


Technologies you’ll work with:

Ember.js, Sass, Stencil.js, Storybook, Lerna, Gitlab, Docker, Google Cloud

(feel free to ask us why these are the best fit for us)
